Fashion Icon: Clara Bow

Clara Bow was THE silent movie star of the 1920s.

Tomboyish, awkward and with a comical face, Clara won her first role on the screen at the age of 16 based on these qualities.

It's one of the things I love about Clara, she defies gender and still is sensational.

Clara Bow's make-up became iconic in the twenties, without Clara we wouldn't have the bow lip. A lipstick application that emphasises the curves of a woman's lips.
Military seemed to take some part in Clara's style;

But with age she became a prominent sex symbol.

Clara was a character

And some of her style would raise some eyebrows in our more modern society;
But I just love her style

Especially these shoe!
And there she is; Clara Bow- 1920s film star, fashion icon and sex symbol.
